The quality of the curriculum provided by teacher training providers will be inspected by Ofsted. It is hoped that by changing the focus of what information is looked at by Ofsted, which had a lot of emphasis on performance data, will limit the possibility of any strengths or weaknesses in providers being missed. ‘New inspections of teacher training providers will be more focused on their curriculum, Ofsted chief inspector Amanda Spielman has revealed. Ms Spielman admitted that Ofsted’s checks on initial teacher education has been driven by performance data – as it has been with schools – which could be masking weaknesses or strengths in some training providers. In a commentary published today, she said the changes to the initial teacher education framework (ITE) would bring it in line with the new education inspection framework in schools, which has an increased focus on curriculum.’ https://www.tes.com/news/ofsted-focus-teacher-training-curriculum What do you think about the plan to change the focus of teacher training inspections by Ofsted?
